These are very great tips for anyone who works with or communicates with an individual who may have impaired hearing. I enjoyed reading these tips and they will be helpful to know, not only as a health care professional, but also as an individual exposed to the deaf community.

"We cannot afford to let the issue of disabilities be simply an afterthought. We have a unique opportunity now, as industry pours billions of dollars into upgrading the communications infrastructure, to make sure that people with disabilities are not left behind. Now is the time. Accessibility of services and products for all Americans has got to be a design feature, not an add-on."
